Have you adjusted your settings using an ICC profile or manually? The calibration is poor from the factory.

I've tried, but not sure if I'm doing it wrong in regards to the ICC profile or where to find one that everyone agrees is the best. As far as manual, I've set the Brightness to 40, Contrast 75
Custom Colors are 97, 99, 100
In the NVIDIA control panel I've set it to use nvidia settings and changed them to
B 50%
C50%
Gamma .66
Digital Vibrance 61%

Not sure what else to do

How does this monitor stack up against the PG279Q?
Or is there something better that gets closer to the PG279Q?

This is a TN panel so it competes more with PG278QR, with the Dell you're just giving up the OSD enhancements for $150-200 less.

PG279Q is an 4ms IPS panel.

If you play FPS or other fast moving games you want TN, IPS for other gametypes or activities.

Yeah bro TN ain't needed unless you really picky about that extra performance. The best TN panel you can buy on the market is this Dell monitor. They have the least amount of coating which will allow you to have the best picture. Dell also has the best warranty out of the Acer and Asus. In regards to what is better than pg279q or the xb271hu. I just replaced my Dell with two Acer IPS predators.

Is it a drastic performance increase? No not really. Can the Dell do everything the Acer can. I would say close to seventy-five 80% if not a hundred percent for most people.

165hz vs 144hz. The TN is a little bit faster when I play Rainbow Six Siege. My properly calibrated Dell what can I say I love the monitor. Where the Asus or Acer wins would be because of all the little on-screen display features. You get black equalizer Black Level boost the built-in cross chairs the ability to actually save presets. I have one of those two gaming chairs from maxnomic.

So one thing that kind of sucked about my TN panel is what I would put it all the way back and recline and play or watch a video the screen would disappear because of viewing angles. But with the IPS panels I see everything. I can walk around the room and the photo looks exactly the same. Especially when you have to 27 inch monitor side by side and they're at a slight angle it's kind of annoying. When I had one monitor which was the dell and I had my side monitor as the PlayStation 3D TV. I had no issues because the Dell would always be facing me on my side panel was my side monitor which is an IPS which has no issues with angles.

If you can get a deal on an xb271hu or pg279q I guess go for it. Also check out that ViewSonic. Is the difference worth $400 more? In my honest opinion no it's not. But if you are going to have more than one of these if there is a chance you will be looking at it from different viewing angles. If you will be lounging back all the way down and looking at it from a lower than optimal viewing angle and go for the IPS. I also like it because it's actually a gaming monitor it has the built-in cross chairs that I use sometimes it has the black equalizer which on Mac setting almost makes the blacks equal to TN. I know they say that there is less detail in ATMs black because it appears washed out but for me I'd like that because I can actually see. So with these monitors they have a built-in ability to control that which in my opinion is amazing.

My favorite part about getting these Acer monitors is viewing angles is a plus but that's only because I changed up how I use my set up now. The other best feature is the saved presets. I have to properly calibrated setting and that's all I use. When I want a little bit more brightness I click setting to when I want normal I go back to setting one if I want blue light filter I turn on built-in blue light filter. Seriously it's it's very niche if you can justify the extra money for the extra software benefits then yes it's worth extra money. The biggest upgrade was the fact that when I move my mouse or tap on the keyboard and monitor immediately wakes up unlike my Dell. I did not mind because I love the Monitor and it was my first g-sync monitor. But when your five-year-old PlayStation monitor wakes up without having to click any buttons and the Dell has to be tapped every single time to turn on it gets a bit annoying.

So my conclusion the two biggest issues that were resolved with the replacement of the Dell with the Acer Predators was for me no more sleep weight issue. Second I don't constantly adjust the contrast the ICM profiles the brightness on the TN panel. Time Saved. Viewing angles allow me to lay back and still retain visual clarity. What is the extra cost worth it to you?

Ya...I just picked up a pg279q for $500...it was open box so got a killer deal on it...The dell is just too dim for me and I cannot abide the off white...I'm sure it's great for reading....but my God it's ugly

I use flux every night. When you use flux on a Dell or a TN panel I don't even notice it on and off. Wild the IPS panel went from vibrant to like very yellow. That showed me the range of the colors that a TN could output vs an IPS.

This is a long shot but do you have the new "Night Light" feature disabled in the Windows 10 machine where you have your Dell monitor connected?

I don't have the creators update installed so the feature isn't even there

I really wanted to like the Dell as I'm usually a big fan of their monitors, but I just can't keep the yellow-white. The ASUS ROG IPS panel should clear that up with no issues. The only thing I'm losing going from a TN to an IPS is the 1ms vs 4ms; however, that won't be noticeable...plus I've always doubted the 1ms response time on any panel.

It's an easy tradeoff to make considering the colors on the IPS are going to be far better and it's a 165Hz refresh rate with G-sync....hopefully I don't end up with some BLB that IPS are notorious for
